After breakfast at hotel, we will transfer you to experience the bamboo rafting down Yulong River. Yulong River is a tributary of Li River and a great place to enjoy the stunning karst scenery and pastoral views of Yangshuo. Taking the bamboo raft in the morning can always avoid tourist crowds. Instead of noisy motors on Li River, the bamboo rafts on Yulong River are punted slowly by a man with a pole. That makes the journey more relaxed and enjoyable. (Please note the raft tour is unavailable for people over 70 or less than 7 years old).
In the afternoon, let’s move on to visit Xianggong Mountain, the best spot to have a bird view of Li River and the ever-changing limestone peaks on the shores! Xianggong Mountain is around 28km from Yangshuo and it takes about 45 minutes along the country roads. So if you get travel sick this is something to keep in mind. The mountain is not high, and it takes only 15 minutes to get to the top via stone steps. Steps were uneven in places but a handrail was available for 90% of the way. Standing on the three-storey viewing platform, you will marvel at the gorgeous view.
After that, we get down the mountain and drive to the nearby Tea plantation, which is a nice and quiet place to relax and enjoy a cup of tea. Strolling at the tea plantation, you may see some girls are busy workig on the terraced fields. They are all dressed in folk style clothes, picking tea sprouts. Have a seat at a quaint tea house, aside from sipping tea, you can also watch a refined tea ceremony and get to know more about Chinese culture. If the weather permits, watch the sun sets the tea mountain. Enjoy your relaxed afternoon and we will drive back to your resort at appropriate time.
